vaw_icon_pdf_smCurriculum Vitae


Dr. Carrie A. Moylan is an associate professor in the School of Social Work. Dr. Moylan has over 20 years of experience in the gender-based violence field, both as a practitioner and as a researcher. Currently, Dr. Moylan is engaged in research examining campus sexual assault policy implementation at colleges and universities and identifying campus-level risk and protective factors such as the role of campus climate in shaping sexual assault prevalence. She has partnered with Center for Survivors to evaluate Crisis Chat, a web-based crisis hotline for sexual assault survivors, in an NIJ-funded project. She has also conducted research on the functioning of multidisciplinary Sexual Assault Response Teams — for which she was awarded the Society for Social Work and Research Outstanding Social Work Doctoral Dissertation Award — and research on outcomes associated with childhood exposure to domestic violence in the home.
